Kitchenaid Washer (KAWE777BWHO) Motor Prob

6 posts in this topic

I have an older Kitchenaid washer that no longer pumps out the water after it washes. The agitator works, so I know the motor is a least partially functional, it just won't turn the rod that powers the pump. Pump is clear of debris, and I also found a blue 6" 12 gauge wire lying under the washer. I can not for the life of me figure our where it belongs, or if it even matters. Any ideas?

You mean the motor doesn't run at all during the spin cycle?  If yes, replace the lid switch

If no, explain.

The machine fills, agitates, then stops. Water will not drain, and it never gets to spin cycle.
